    Lyrics

    Won't you look up at the skyline
    At the mortar, block, and glass
    And check out the reflections in my eyes
    See they always used to be there
    Even when this all was grass
    And I sang and danced about a high-rise
    And you were laughing at my helmet hat
    Laughing at my torch

    Go ahead you can laugh all you want
    I got my philosophy
    (Keeps my feet on the ground)
    And I trust it like the ground
    That's why my philosophy
    Keeps me walking when I'm falling down

    I see that there is evil
    And I know that there is good
    And the in-betweens I never understood
    Won't you look at me I'm crazy
    But I get the job done
    I'm crazy but I get the job done

    I say go ahead and laugh all you want
    But I got my philosophy
    (Keeps my feet on the ground)
    And I trust like the ground
    That's why my philosophy
    Keeps me walking when I'm falling down

    I pushed you cause I loved you guys
    I didn't realize you weren't having fun
    And I dragged you up the stairs
    And I told you to fly
    You were flapping your arms
    Then you started to cry, you were too high
    Too high....

    Now you take this all for granted
    You take the mortar, block, and glass
    And you forget the speech that moved the stone
    But it's really not that you can't see
    The forest from the trees

    You've never been out in the woods alone
    So you can laugh all you want to
    I've got my philosophy
    (It keeps my feet on the ground)
    And I love you you're my friend
    But you got no philosophy
    Now it's time for this song to end
